    I have put the tests complete with arena on my website so that i can "practice" by using the mouse as a horse and "riding" it around the screen.

    if only i knew how to code java, i would animate a little horse, and perhaps make a game out of it where you could practice and test and.... anyway, i'm not that cool.

    I find this strangely fun, but am afraid to learn the tests for fear that I will jinx my season and have to sit out again with lameness. How pathetic is that!
    Anyway, thanks for posting...

    I love it.
    Leave it there for a while - I'm going to use it.

    When I first started competing I spent a lot of time walking the tests in the dressage ring because I couldn't visualize them.
    The kids at the barn would come down and ask me what was I doing???

    Neat - thanks for posting them. Even tho I don't compete anymore I still like something to break the boredom, esp. now with winter indoorringitis setting in! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I think Erin most definately should move this into the archives!

    I was just thinking to myself:self,it's time you sat down and memorized those training level tests.After all, if you are ever going to be ready...you might as well get ready!!

    It's great to have them on the computer-so very handy...You are to be soundly thanked!

    triggerfoot- do you mind if I copy your tests onto my computer so I can do them off of my compter closer to the time I will be doing them since my feeble memory cannot retain them for more than a week?

    My mouse is a very cool galloping horse--I found it on my Windows NT 4.0.

    Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel, Mouse, Pointers, Browse, Horse. It's a realistic looking bay thoroughbred that constantly gallops. Although you have to get used to where the "click spot" is (it's on his hip bone!).

    Thanks for the tests!

    warning these are the 2002 tests. if there are any changes in this year's tests i will edit them. also, it might be wise for one of you kind souls to proofread for me. i would feel highly sh***y if i sent anyone off course. anyway, i provide them "copyright free" so feel free to use them however you want. i'll put them all in one place on my website to make them easier to link to. the address will probably be php.indiana.edu/~juschers/tests.htm
    but beware that as of this moment, the page doesn't exist yet (maybe i'll do this later today, won't take but a second).
